Small-Group City Tour of Buenos Aires

813 reviews
Buenos Aires’ neighborhoods each have a distinctive character from the historic barrios of San Telmo and La Boca, to the beautiful parks and plazas of Palermo and Recoleta, and the modern skyscrapers of Puerto Madero. This small-group tour is ideal for first-time visitors or those short on time, visiting all of the top attractions in just half a day.

We were told that this huge stainless steel flower was only partially functional when we saw it. It is supposed to fully open in the sunshine but was only partly there.

Were here in January but the flower was not operating. We were told that it only works for about half of the year. Took only 15 minutes to stop and take a photo of it.

We visited this park to see the huge stainless steel flower, which we did. There are mechanics that open and close this thing with the passing of time during the day, but of course we didn't stay around to watch that happen (would be like watching paint dry). Instead, we marveled at the sculpture for 15 minutes, walked around it, and then headed to the grassy park behind us. On a beautiful day (as we had) we sat on the lawn, relaxed, and even threw a baseball around father and son style, (since we brought our gloves). Very nice park and statue, and walking trails too, in the beautiful neighborhood of Recoleta.

On a beautiful sunny day, this is a wonderful place to stroll through the lovely park that is home to this magnificent modern sculpture. You can access it easily with the Hop-on-Hop-Off bus.

Floralis Generica itself is interesting and it only takes a few minutes to walk around it. It operates mechanically in coordination with the time of day, opening at 8:00 a.m. and closing around sunset. We weren’t there at 8:00 a.m., but I presume it would be pretty cool to watch the flower unfold for the day. When we arrived at about 10:00 a.m., it was fully open and we saw no evidence of its mechanics. Being stainless steel, it does offer reflections for photos on a nice day. We were in BA in January and had previously spent some time in Palermo. On this particular day we were interested in spending our time walking back to the Hilton along Puerto Madero. So, we took a taxi (about $6 USD) to the Floralis Generica spend a little time there and used it as our starting point for first walking 15 minutes to the Recoleta Cemetery, stopping by the Claustros Históricos Basílica del Pilar along the way. We then walked 20 minutes to El Ateneo Grand Splendid which has to be the world’s most ornate and interesting bookstore. In another 5 minutes we were at the beautiful Water Company Palace (Museo del Agua) which occupies an entire city block. Be sure to walk completely around the exterior and if time allows enter the main doorway on the Riobamba Street side to take the ancient elevator up to the History of Sanitation Museum, which is worthy of a short hour of your time. Another 15-minute walk brings you to the Opera House (Teatro Colon) where there is a nice park across the street for resting. The outside of the Opera House is nice, but not magnificent, so make sure you go inside. It is worth going on line ahead of time to reserve tickets for the tour either on this stop or at a later time. Don’t miss this tour! The opera house ids just a 5-minute walk to the Obelisk and before you get there go to the top of the steps provided for viewing. The base of the Obelisk is a perfect location for a Christmas Card photo. You will probably see a line there, where those waiting will gladly take pictures of those whose turn is next. Cross the magnificent 18-lane Avenue 9 Julio (9th of July) and you will be surrounded by cheap places offering almost any meal you want. We ate at the Tostado Café and took our food to the second floor for a window view of the crowds below. Very pleasant with great food at reasonable prices. After eating, we walked 15 minutes to the Cathedral of Buenos Aires(Pope Francis’ cathedral) and take a look inside. This will put you at the famous Plaza de Mayo where you can sit, people watch and stroll around what is probably the most historic site in Buenos Aires. We finished with a short 10-minute walk to the wonderful upscale Puerto Madero. The place to be late afternoon/early evening with street performers and endless choices for a meal.
